Q:
# An ordinary fair die is a cube with the numbers 1 through 6 on the sides. Imagine that such a die is rolled twice in succession and that the faces of the 2 rolls are added together. This sum is recorded of single trial of a random experiment. Event A: The sum is greater than 6 Event B the sum is divisible by 6

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:A. 5/9 B. 1/6.Step-by-step explanation:Total possible events = 6*6 = 36.A. The possible combinations for the sum being <= 6 are:1 ,1 2,2 3,3 1,2 1,3 1,4 1,5 2,1 2,3 2,4 3,1 3,2 3,3 4,1 4,2 5,1 = 16So Probability of Sum > 6 = (36-16) / 36= 20/36= 5/9.B. Possible combinations where the sum is divisible by 6 are3,3 2,4 4,2 1,5 5,1. 6,6 = 6.So the required probability = 6/36= 1/6.
